    Good news about your car. I hope your DH can get rid of the IL's ASAP. I ca't believe that they'd leave your home such a mess. I mean, NOT pg is bad enough, but abut to have LO makes it so much worse!

    Just a tip - to get the smoke smell out, pour some white vinegar in bowls and put them throughout the house or mix 1/2 vinegar & 1/2 water in a spray bottle and spray it everywhere (the smell will go away when it dries.) It'll smell like pickles everywhere for a while, but the smoke smell will go away. DH smoked in our house until the 1st of the month and now I'm scrubbinh walls, ceilings, etc. with vinegar & water B4 LO gets here - UGH!

    yuck i dont want to even think about my inlaws!!!! GRR! DH was going to take them back today but we just found out that National Guard is arresting people trying to go back!!! I can't believe that! So he is stuck with them unless he has the heart to take them to the shelter, which I don't think he does. At least they have run out of cigarettes by now...last he told me they were chugging nyquil to avoid being sober. WTF!!!!!!! Oh well I'm parking my butt here in Dallas until they are gone!

    Hey Clare! I'm so sorry about all the crap you've been going through...your in-laws sound so ungrateful. I really hope you get things back to normal soon! So any word on whether that was your mucus plug??

    Thank you! I agree, my corgis are cute, aren't they? man I have missed them so much! I am glad we are all ok too, it seems almost no one was really injured from the storm which is miraculous, I think they've only found 3 dead people so far...simply amazing for the size of the storm!

    Hey Becca! Good news! DH took inlaws home this morning on his way to pick me up! I AM HOME! It's sooooo nice to be back, this is the first day I've had just by myself with DH for about 3 weeks, so we are definitely not able to keep our hands off each other...it's so nice!

    I'm pretty sure that was part of my mucus plug, but it wasn't huge so I think maybe it was just a piece? I had contractions 1 or 2 days later, I can't remember...but they weren't regular. I think I had 5 in about 3-4 hours, and I'm pretty sure they were due to sitting in a car for 8 or 9 hours and stress and dehydration (couldn't drink much because there was no place to pee but in a cup, which isn't very fun). I had 1 more contraction last night, but it was by itself. I think my body is just getting ready. I can't wait to go back to my birth center, I am still trying to get ahold of them and I really hope they get power back soon if they lost it. I want to have power in the place where I have my baby!!! The cell phone service is really spotty right now so they may have just not been able to get the call but I am hoping to hear from them soon! With the gas shortage going all the way out there is gonna be tough, but hopefully I can just skip this week's appt and go back in next week and everything in Houston will be back to normal and we will be able to get gas and stuff.

    Oh that's so great that you are back home! And so happy you've had such a great reunion with dh....I guess what they say is true, absence does make the heart grow stronger! Since you may have lost part of your plug, will you be checked to see if you've dilated at all? I'm not sure if it is different when you have a MW.

    I was checked last time, but my MW is very short and has a small frame...therefore small hands, and she couldn't really reach up there very easily last time! She said I was effacing but no info on dilation. I don't really care about knowing one way or the other, if I am, great, if not, oh well, some people don't start until they are in labor so I know being 3cm can mean nothing, you could still have 2 more weeks...that's how I feel at this point anyways! I mean it is nice to know but I wouldn't put money on anything or get my hopes up or be disappointed either way.
